Student-Created Alphabet Frieze

As you set up your classroom, consider NOT using a store bought alphabet frieze. Read how to easily have students create the alphabet display for your classroom!

As a 1st grade teacher, my classroom walls were always pretty bare at the beginning of the school year.  The reason for this was I wanted the students to take ownership of the classroom!  Why hang a premade poster when I could have the students create it themselves? By having students make the resources they were more likely to use them throughout the year.  

One resource I had students create was the Alphabet Frieze that I would hang above the board.  Each student selected the letter they wanted to illustrate.  By allowing student choice the student-created alphabet frieze was much more used by students than the premade one I had used in the past.

Below is an alphabet chart that you can use with your students as a reference when creating their Alphabet Frieze.  You can make it a poster for the classroom or add to students' writing folders.
